Air India had given me a free plane ticket on the assumption that I would go up into the Nilgiri Hills and write about sambars and sloth bears, tigers and tahrs - and figured that if I publicised their eco-tours, then lots of rich Americans might follow me, enabling them to accomplish what they eachaspired to do, which, because they were young men, was either to pay for a marriage to a Brahmin or else fly to California and go hang-gliding in the Sierras.” (Edward Hoagland - Wild Things)
